Re: Proposed Harbor Security Changes in the US.

Well, I did read it and having worked in the bureaucracy I can say it is your tax dollars at work creating bureaucratic BS in the finest tradition.
- - It is a document of goals and objectives to make everybody "peachy keen happy and secure." There is no "meat" in it.
Here are a few excerpts:
The Plan is a roadmap for realizing the goals and objectives of the DHS National Small Vessel Security Strategy (Strategy). The intent of the Strategy is to reduce potential security and safety risks from small vessels through the adoption and implementation of a coherent system of regimes, awareness and security operations that strike the proper balance between fundamental freedoms, adequate security and continued economic stability.
You gotta love those phrases of clarity I underlined -

The Plan identifies possible and proven means of managing and controlling risks posed by the potential threat and possibly dire consequences of small vessel exploitation by terrorists. Due to its sensitive nature, the Plan itself has been designated Security Sensitive Information, with distribution only to pre-cleared stakeholders (e.g., members of Area Maritime Security Committees). Consistent with the Administration's commitment to transparency and to emphasize the collaborative nature of the effort, this report provides a publically releasable synopsis of the Plan.

I love this part - the plan is security sensitive so they publish it on the internet . . . and a much larger document, the actual whole plan is buried somewhere where we can't see it.
- - So all in all, IMHO, nothing to get even mildly anxious over . . . Pure fluff. But that doesn't mean that the bureaucrats won't use the report to do some things quite stupid, illogical and aggravating to us under the guise of "National Security."
